Penguin Doodle A Day: Week 5

Sketchbook_Week5 Happy Friday!

Guess what came in the mail this week? :) My new pink Paper Thinks sketchbook! And I love it! I'm already wanting to buy more in different colors for other purposes like writing down quotes said by Bruce, a love letter notebook with Brandon, and general note taking. Apologies for the poor quality of the photo. I simply just scanned it through my mom's scanner and since she doesn't have any photo editing programs, it's straight from the scan. (Bruce and I have been staying at her place.)

I think you can tell that this week, love has been the inspiration behind most of my doodles. We miss Brandon and Katsu oh, so much! Valentine's Day was a little hard not being able to spend it with our whole Phamily, but Bruce and I put together a little care package for Brandon. He received it yesterday and it included snacks from my mom, Bruce's artwork, a photo of Bruce kissing Brandon on Skype, a love letter from me, and this huge love poster I printed out. :) He was delightfully surprised. We also surprised my mom with a little note from Bruce and some heart cookies!

Did you get to spend time with your loved one, friends, or family on Valentine's Day? ;) Wishing you a wonderful weekend!

Lots of Smiles, Akiyo

Update: This might be a better photo:

Have a lovely weekend! :)
